12:00 pm
stop and prevent and control the spread than a more expensive test that you perform less frequently and wait longer for the results. >> reporter: and there's also some new information that might concern substance abusers. according to a new study from researchers at the national institute on drug abuse, it finds that people who are substance -- who have substance abuse disorders, cannabis, tobacco and alcohol, who are fully vaks ccinated could be at higher risk for breakthrough infections or serious disease from breakthrough infections than people without. >> thank you. this is cnn breaking news. >> it is a brand new hour, thanks for being with us, i'm victor blackwell. >> i'm alisyn camerota. any moment now, the senate is
12:01 pm
scheduled to vote on a bill that would suspend the debt ceiling. republicans have vowed to block this measure, saying the democrats have to figure out how to pay the country's debt on its own, though much of the debt was racked up by president trump. >> we now know that minority leader mitch mcconnell will discuss two proposals with majority leader chuck schumer for a possible short-term suspension. he's concerned that moderate democrats, senators joe manchin, and kyrsten sinema might gut the filibuster if there's no deal on the debt ceiling. joining us now, cnn chief congressional correspondent, manu raju, and white house correspondent jeremy diamond. first, the potential for this deal, walk us through it. >> we'll see what happens, in fact, there's a bit of uncertainty at the moment about whether this vote is expected to take place in a matter of minutes actually will take place in the after math of mitch mcconnell making a proposal here to try to stave off a default just for a short-term, for a
12:02 pm
couple of months, because republican senators in the hallways are telling reporters that they expect this vote, it's expected to take place in the 3:00 hour right now to be delayed. they say they are hearing that democrats are going to meet and discuss what to do about these offers and decide whether to proceed with in vote. this vote would suspend the national debt limit, overcome the filibuster, require 60 votes to suspend the debt limit until the end of november. now, i have checked with democratic leadership sources who are not yet saying whether or not it will be delayed. a bit of drama, a bit of uncertainty. we have to monitor what happens in a matter of moments. this all came as a result of a shift from senator mitch mcconnell, the minority leader, chuck schumer, what he's suggesting is to raise the national debt limit, up until december, by a few hundred billion dollars. they would all vote to do just that, and/or if not, proposing a fast track process to allow for the debt ceiling to be increased
12:03 pm
by democratic votes alone. now, democrats have not seen this proposal, mitch mcconnell only made this case to his colleagues privately. and now it's up to democrats also to agree to this, and it would also be up to all 100 senators to agree for a quick vote. one senator can scudttle that agreement. it could be a bit of a shift, a change, potentially moving forward ending a default here. we'll see what happens. and one other key element, mitch mcconnell is concerned that if there's not a deal, democrats will blow up the senate filibuster rules, joe manchin, kyrsten sinema, they're under immense pressure to blow up the rules. we're seeing a shift in last minute talks with democratic leaders. >> isn't that interesting, jeremy. we don't often see minority leader mcconnell blink after a bluff. he must be, i mean, that's a source from inside a closed door meeting, but he must truly be
12:04 pm
concerned about the idea of the filibuster blowing up because he was dug in. he said he wasn't going to help democrats at all. today, now, at this hour, there's this shift. >> no doubt about it. make no mistake, this is not mitch mcconnell fully caving. in fact, i think it's also an attempt to take a little bit out of the wind of the sails of one of the key arguments that president biden has been making about why he doesn't want the senate democrats to do this through reconciliation. i asked the president about that yesterday, and one of the things he kept coming back to is the fact that the reconciliation process is fraught with uncertainty. he said it's an incredibly complicated and cumbersome process, time consuming, this idea of potentially unlimited votes on unrelated amendments that would happen during one of those budget sessions. mitch mcconnell in saying, look, we'll do a short-term debt ceiling extension until december, to give you the time to go through the potentially cumbersome process, and also allow the process to be expedited by perhaps limiting
12:05 pm
the number of votes, that cuts at one of the core arguments we have been hearing from president biden, but nonetheless, one of the key things that we heard from the president today as he was sitting down with these business and financial leaders was underscoring the fact that even now, even right now with this uncertainty hanging over the united states over this debt ceiling extension, there are already effects happening in the markets. the ceo of jp morgan said on monday, his company is going to begin looking at ways to adjust their business if this debt ceiling extension does not happen. that's something that the white house will certainly come back to is that a short-term extension while perhaps giving more time to actually get this done ultimately is only going to allow for further uncertainty to continue to exist. but we will hear from the white house press secretary jen psaki in about 25 minutes, and we'll see what she says. >> let's go back to manu, what about this vote. >> she just told ore colleague
12:06 pm
that they are in fact going to review in mcconnell proposal, see what they think, maybe make a counter proposal, maybe go back and forth with the vote that's going to fail. they need 60 votes to overcome the filibuster, and democrats are planning to have a closed door meeting now essentially to figure out whether or not they will agree to this. so still uncertain, movement to a deal, we'll see. but at the moment, this vote, standoff vote, not going to happen. we'll see ultimately what the result is here. >> things are literally changing by the minute, and you bring us the latest as soon as we have it. we appreciate you, manu raju, and jeremy diamond, thank you. now to this, the house committee investigating the january 6th capitol riots has a missing person on its hands. they cannot seem to find donald tr trump's former white house deputy chief of staff dan scavino. more than a week after issuing a subpoena with scavino's name on it, they cannot find him to actually serve the subpoena. >> trump associates mark meadow,
12:07 pm
steven ban non, and cash patel, they were subpoenaed. they have until tomorrow to comply with the document request and a deposition deadline next week. what does this mean for the committee's investigation that they can't find one of the four? >> victor, it just really complicates the process and what is already expected to be a complicated process. the committee is already bracing for the fact that these four men will attempt to not comply with the subpoenas in general, so the fact that they can't even begin the legal process that would come out of a noncompliance to the subpoena orders delays that process if they can't get ahold of scavino to serve him with this paperwork to begin this process, and as you mentioned, the deadline for the document requests portion of this subpoena is thursday at midnight, meaning friday, if they have not responded, that's when the committee has to begin making decisions about how they move forward, and then of course next week, all four men are supposed to be here in washington to meet in a private
12:08 pm
deposition in front of the select committee, and of course the committee has a range of options in which they can enforce these subpoenas, both civilly, and criminally, and the chairman of the january 6th select committee has said that they will not rule out the possibility of holding these individuals in criminal contempt if they try to avoid complying with the subpoenas. that's not about easy process, though, it will require a vote of the entire house of representatives, and then a referral to the department of justice to actually execute said criminal contempt referrals. there's a lot of work that needs to be done between now and then. also, don't forget, they would like to have an actual conversation with these men. this is not just about attempting to publicly shame them for their role on what happened january 6th. they want to get as much information out of them as possible, so when you get into a position here where you're in a
12:09 pm
legal battle, that makes that process all that more difficult. >> ryan nobles, thank you so much. more on the breaking news from arlington, texas, the suspected school shooter is in custody. the shooting happened at timber view high school. >> three students were taken to the hospital. cnn's ed lavlavandera is on the. tell us what happened. the shooter is in custody. >> reporter: that happened a short while ago, 18-year-old timothy george simpkins has turned himself in. we were told by investigators in arlington that he came into the police station with an attorney. so that concern is now over. police say that investigators are speaking with the attorney and the 18-year-old suspect in this case, and now the scene here at the school has settled down dramatically. there was a fleet of yellow school buses that has now removed all 1,700 students that were inside the school. they have been now taken to the
12:10 pm
reunification center at a performing arts building not too far from here, and that's where the students were being reunited with their family members. all of that has already happened. and investigators say they continue the investigation and that the 18-year-old suspect in this case now faces three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. and the good news, alisyn, and victor is that the victims, the shooting victims in this case appear to be all in good condition. there was one person who was in surgery and is already out and remains in critical condition, but the other two victims, we are told, will be okay. in fact, all of the victims will be apparently okay, so that is one sliver of good news in what has been a dramatic morning here in arlington, texas. >> yes, good news indeed. one more element here from the police there, warning parents, as we have been talking about social media all week that parents should pay attention to their kids social media. here's what he said.
12:11 pm
>> we have been having a lot of social media comments about threats to our schools from young kids. i want the message to be out there that this is not something to continue. we will investigate you. the federal government will also, our partners will be able to investigate you, if you're not living in our city, and we will bring you to successful prosecution. >> sounds like it's going to be a significant part of their investigation, as they're now securing or adding security to other schools across the district. >> and what the officer there i'm told we're speaking with the public information officer after that press conference to clarify exactly what the chief was talking about there is that apparently as this incident was unfolding there were a number of social media threats coming in to schools in the surrounding area, and what these officers are saying is that as the
12:12 pm
emergency was unfolding here on this high school cam ppus, they had to divert resources to deal with calls and potential threats coming in at other schools, and it sounds like that might have reached a level that was rather alarming to the officers here at the scene and that's why you heard the police chief here this afternoon come out and make those statement as they were dealing and trying to make sense in realtime as they have a team of officers that monitor social media during events like this, and that's what they were seeing. it wasn't necessarily threats coming into this particular campus, but it was threats going out to schools in areas in the surrounding area, and obviously that comes at a very difficult time when resources are already stretched thin in an emergency situation like we saw here this morning. >> understood. ed lavandera for us in arlington, texas, thank you. now to this update, brian laundrie's parents are changing their story about when they last

12:18 pm
casarez is with us. this is a difference in the time line, what have you learned? >> one day, right. and what the attorney is telling us for the parents and brian that they thought it was the 14th, but after consulting and talking with the fbi they realized, no, it must have been the 13th, which would be a monday, and they reported brian missing on that friday. so you've got quite a few days there because he never came home. but here's another fact. it was saturday the 11th that gabby petito was reported missing. that's the first time that law enforcement got involved, it was public, gabby was missing. two days later now it's confirmed by the attorney that's when they last saw brian. we do want to say, you know, they have been continuing this search at the carlton reserve. they have never said they stopped. they scaled back, but they are -- our correspondent out there, leyla santiago tells us they are out there today, and that the sarasota sheriff's department has been asked to
12:19 pm
assist. so we don't know, but it is interesting, and one thing we do know is the family attorney has told cnn he is aware authorities alerted him but he can't comment anymore. >> of course we know in this time line, every day is so crucial in the time line of the disappearance of petito and the search for brian laundrie but we are hearing from gabby petito's family. >> you're so right, victor, because the issue is where is he, will he be found, will he be found alive. well, the petito family, they appeared yesterday on dr. phil's show, and they have a very firm opinion about brian laundrie and where he is and will he be found. take a listen. >> do you believe he's hiding somewhere, do you believe he's hiding somewhere, do you believe he's hiding somewhere? >> i do. >> why do you believe that? >> because he's a coward. flat out. i'd use some other words but i can't use them on your show. he's a coward. >> he's too coward to kill
12:20 pm
himself, too coward to come forw forward. he's just on the run. >> anyone that lived in that house is a coward, and they don't know how to stand up for their actions. >> where tuning he's likely at, you know him, you know what he is, does, knows. is he living off the land somewhere? >> possibly. >> does he have that skill set? >> i believe so. >> and gabby petito's mother said i want answers. we need to have answers, and see, that's the thing, they don't have answers. they don't know anything. and they said yesterday on the show that they weren't hearing from gabby, that they called constantly, they found every number they could find on the laundries, they even texted the laundries to no avail. they got no response, and there is no comment from the attorney for the laundries when we posed that question to them, and finally, they went to law enforcement but they were concerned for brian initially. along with gabby because they weren't hearing from either one. >> it's interesting that he said
12:21 pm
anyone who lived in that house is a coward, not just brian, but also discussing the parents, brian laundrie's parents there. jean casarez, thank you so much. >> thank you. the department of justice says 91,000 people are missing right now in the u.s. the a lot of these cases do not get the coverage they deserve. we're going to bring a few to your attention right now. >> this first one is a cold case that authorities believe freesh eyes could help. this is asha jaquilla, she went missing near her shelby, north carolina home. you can see a picture from that time when she was abducted or went missing. on the right is a progressed photo of what she might look like today. take a close look at your screen. >> here's a more recent case, darnita wilkerson, last seen getting into a silver car outside a motel in evansville, indiana, june of 2020.

12:28 pm
facebook who designed the algorithms for the company, he also has just authored a new opinion piece in the "new york times" titled i designed algorithms at facebook, here's how to regulate them. thank you for being here. you're the perfect person to talk to. when facebook says that the algorithms are, well, let me start with what the whistleblower says, when the whistleblower says the algorithms are designed to enhance polarizing, controversial content, is that true? >> well, i think what we've learned oever the last couple o years not just on facebook but social media in general, when you have an algorithm that optimizes for engagement, content that's getting clicks and shares and likes that naturally the most sort of polarizing inflammatory content will bubble its way to the top, and in the absence of regulation, it's very difficult for these companies to make the changes they need to internally because, you know, if they do that, they'll lose audience,
12:29 pm
they'll lose time spent on their platforms, so it really needs to be a comprehensive regulation, which is what i proposed in my piece in the "new york times." >> let's talk about that, what is the most impactful regulation, the most impactful change that you're suggesting? >> so what my proposal calls for, and by the way, tit's not just me. frances haugen yesterday also called for the same regulation, a narrow exemption in section 230 which is law that basically makes it so these companies can host user generated content without fear of lawsuits, so if there was a very narrow exemption in that basically saying if you're a social media platform and you use an algorithm to amplify this content, you should be held liable for that content. what i would do is make it so the platforms would moves away from the algorithm based feeds and move towards feeds and systems that users have more control over. we want to take the power away
12:30 pm
from the ai systems and bring them back to the users. >> look, i don't even know if facebook wants to change anything that is making them so much money. they claim that there's nothing wrong with their algorithm. yelled we had on monica bickert, the vice president of content policy in facebook. let me just show you what she said about whether or not the algorithm is creating inflammatory product. >> let's be clear, people can opt out of the algorithm. the al goe -- it is ranking the comments from friends, if you want to see posts in chronological or reverse chronological order, you can. >> she makes it so benign, can people opt out of the algorithm, where would you find that? >> i tried before the show to try to do it. to go back to the feed that they called most recent, so just sort of all my posts order in regency, no ai system, and it
12:31 pm
took me five minutes, i had to go to the help section to figure out how to do it. it was three clicks, and by the way the next time i refreshed the page, i was back to the algorithm, they certainly don't make it easy. in my opinion, these sort of default feeds should be just chronological order, which by the way, a lot of users prefer, and make that the default and avoid the algorithm and biases and problems we have seen with the algorithms over five years. >> if it took you five minutes, we'll be here tomorrow. >> you designed it and can't figure out how to get out of the algorithm. you wrote in your piece that the political challenge that democrats see this as the primary concern. i have it here, they believe that it's the relentless spread of disinformation, republicans claim about censorship and bias. we saw in this hearing a degree of cordiality. some agreement between the two sides, do you believe that this time is different considering
12:32 pm
the compelling testimony and the flood of documents. >> well, i hope so. you know, one of the things that i think a very targeted bill around section 230 is -- we would achieve is that it would help both sides kind of address their concerns, so the concerns on misinformation, if you get rid of the algorithm, those concerns get resolved. the problems around bias, and algorithmic bias, censoring certain types of posting from being shown, that would fgo awa. i think there's an opportunity to bring both sides together, that would have an impact on the tools we use every day. >> without a law being passed. you describe in your op-ed that it is virtually impossible to police this content, because, you know, facebook has been telling us, we have more people who are monitoring this stuff than other social media platforms but why do you say
12:33 pm
that internally it's impossible. >> i think it's very difficult and when you have taepeams of t of thousands of peeople that ar the content moderators, and by the way, most are english speaking, they're in the u.s. and the u.k., where most of the users of facebook and other social media are outside of the u.s. and the u.k. in different languages, you know, hundreds of different languages, different cultural contexts, it's a very difficult problem, and so i think if you're able to get rid of the algorithms, you'll resolve a lot of these issues. >> the basic premise of frances haugen's testimony and her interview on sunday night was that facebook puts profits over people. but if they have to abide by this new regulation they're suggesting, mark zuckerberg will still be a multibillionaire, right, they still will be insert
12:34 pm
superlative, insert hyperbole, rich, they will still have huge profits, right, this wouldn't kill the company? >> absolutely not. i think if you look back, twitter, for instance, did not have an ai feed until 2015, facebook in its first two years didn't have a feed at all and was quite successful. and, you know, while the companies may say, well, you know, the algorithm is what people want, it's the core of what we do, if the reality is if they're forced to get rid of them, they'll find other ways to create value for people, and actually, i think, bring it back to the way that, you know, i remember social media used to be, a place to share with family and friends and we didn't have these huge kind of societal problems, so i think, you know, facebook's product managers and designers, you know, they will find ways to build, you know, good compelling tools, and platforms that we like but don't have a lot of the same kind of challenges that have come from relying on ai as being the main driver of growth and engagement.
12:35 pm
>> well, that's a relief. we don't have to worry about mark zuckerberg going broke. roddie lindsay, thank you very much for all of the expertise. thank you very much for talking to us. >> thanks very having me. two dates, august 29th, september 4th. significant dates for fox news, the only days in the last six months when the network did not undermine covid vaccines on air. that's according to new research from the progressive group media matters. now, despite the fact that vaccines are highly effective at prevents death and severe illness, fox news air has been filled with vaccine misinformation and false claims and inflammatory rhetoric. >> the study also finds that fox did not mind the vaccines when donald trump was president. they only ramped up their anti-vaccine stance once president biden was elected. here is just some of their disinformation until the past month. >> how do unvaccinated people hurt anybody. >> they have natural immunity, and better immunity than people
12:36 pm
who are vaccinated. >> we don't have sovereignty over our own bodies. we have to take a vaccine. >> the cdc says the covid vaccine doesn't actually stop the spread of the virus. okay. s so why are we banning unvaccinated teachers from their classrooms. >> let's talk about mandates. totally out of control. you would think you have the freedom to get a vaccination, no it's not going to happen. when was the last time you were protested or fired because you didn't get a flu shot. >> i don't know if any single one of those words was true. also, don't forget that fox tv itself has very strict vaccine rules for its employees. more than 90% of employees there are vaccinated because there's a man at mandate that they have to be before going into the building. >> we talked about the misinformation on on social media, that's the loop. some of the clips will be shared, and then whatever is
12:37 pm
gener generated on social media comes in bubbles on prime time, and it's a circle for the same people telling the same lie over and over. >> it affects public health. i want to underscore, they didn't do it when donald trump was touting the vaccines, only when biden was. that tells you it's not about the vaccine. that's the take away. meanwhile, u.s. homicide rates rising at the highest rate in modern history. we'll break down the stunning numbers from the cdc's new report next. i was drowning in student loan debt. i was in the process of deferring them, paying them... then i discovered sofi. completely changed my life. lower interest rate. my principal is going down. sofi is a place where you can start to tackle those money goals today.

a troubling new report from the cdc finds that the u.s. homicide rate rose 30% between 2019 and 2020. that's the highest yearly increase in modern u.s. history. >> we want to be clear, though, the overall murder rate in the u.s. is still significantly lower than it was in the 1980s and the 90s. cnn's ryan young is following the developments. ryan, tell us more about what we learned about this spike. >> yeah, victor, when you think about this, it's over 21,000 families that had to deal with homicide last year. it's a really sobering number when you think about the numbers of homicides that happened in the country. look, we have been tracking it for over a year. looking at some of the these increases. we have been to portland, shreveport, birmingham, alabama, baltimore, tracking this crime, what we have seen the impact sort of of covid. the guardrails on community sort of fell off during the space, and we saw that increase in gun violence.
12:43 pm
talking to police chiefs across the country, they say this increase has been tough, especially with the fact that so many police officers have died from covid. let's look at the increase. the 30% increase, from 2019, 6.0 homicides per 100,000. in 2020, it jumped to 7.8 homicides per 100,000. when it comes to suicides in the country, we actually saw a drop in 2019, it was 13.9 suicides per 100,000. in 2020, it was 13.5 suicides per 100,000. across the country, we've seen new measures going in to nmake sure that gun violence spans the communities. no matter what spectrum, crime and community involvement is something people have been talking about especially during the last year. these numbers, though, are really sobering because police departments have been struggling to get a grip on all the gun violence that's happening in the community. when you think about this, hospitals are much better at saving people now than they were ever been before so there's a

lot of people that suffer gunshot wounds and survive who in years past probably wouldn't survive at this point. still, when you think about the numbers that we're dealing with right now, an epidemic that needs more attention. president biden is making moo moves to restore the complex relationship between the u.s. and mexico. he's deploying three officials from his administration to mexico hoping to mend some ties that are crucial for security. >> cnn's priscilla alvarez has more from washington, who are the officials he's sending and what do they think they can accomplish as they head to mexico. >> reporter: this is a stacked trip, and it speaks to the importance of the visit. among the attendees, secretary of state, antony blinken, mayorkas, and it's important because not only the united states shares a border with mexico but because the u.s.
12:45 pm
relies on mexico to resolve crises that are closely tied to u.s. domestic politics. an example of that is the surge of migrants we have been reporting on in the recent months. the united states defaults on relying on mexico to tackle the flow of migrants as they make their way through that country. i'm told immigration enforcement, specifically mexico's immigration enforcement is expected to come up in these discussions. looming over these talks, too, is a lower court ruling in the united states that is requiring the biden administration to bring back that trump era border policy, the so called remain in mexico policy that leaves asylum seekers in mexico until their immigration court dates in the u.s. that, as you can imagine, requires some buy in from mexico. so there is a lot riding on this trip. as you mentioned, the united states trying to mend ties with this country. we have seen it play out over recent months the importance of mexico, and not only helping on the drug enforcement, but also
